Grace Received

I knew this was printing, it has been listed on their website for a few weeks, and yet, like grace, it arrived without my expecting it today. So as I originally thought, this is my first book. (And how thrilling to know there is a second coming just behind it.) If anyone would like a copy, I have about 10 available now and will gladly take orders after those are gone. Or you can write to the press:

Pudding House Publications
81 Shadymere Lane
Columbus, OH 43213

They have not set up online ordering, so best to use postal mail. It's a very reasonable $10 a copy too.

I'm still somewhat in shock, but happy shock!

Ordering Weather!

A bit earlier than expected, Drinking Weather is now available for pre-order. If you possibly can, please place an order for a copy (or several: The holiday season is imminent!). I need to get at least 55 paid orders by December 16. Click here and scroll down.

This book represents the culmination of many years' efforts and I owe an unpayable debt to many people who have offered feedback on work as well as continued encouragement and moral support. My thanks to all my friends, followers, and loyal Salon readers!

Floating the Muddy River

After a lengthy delay due to "technical issues," Muddy River Poetry Review #2, featuring my poem, "Bridge," has finally appeared. (When you click my name, a Word document will either open or download.) While you are there, be sure to look at the work of featured poet Afaa Michael Weaver.

Today I received the mock-up of the cover of Drinking Weather. Pre-ordering starts in ten days. Excitement mounts!
